Ground water in Utah: Resource protection and remediation (UGA-31)

Utah Geological Association

Edited by: L. E. Spangler

Ground water in Utah is an important and current subject. Ground water as a resource is under increased pressure because of droughts, and because of continuing development in many parts of the state. Several artificial recharge projects are in place or being investigated. Projection of ground water is vital as more people live and work in areas that affect the aquifers. Ground-water remediation work is important because human activities have adversely impacted ground water in Utah.

The papers in this guidebook cover many aspects of ground water in different parts of the state. These papers demonstrate how scientists are increasing our knowledge of aquifer systems and how we are learning more about developing, protecting, and remediating these aquifers.
